It seems he's either saying we're going to smash 6 past Atletico at the Wanda, or the wheels are going to come off after coming up against Moyes.
What a horrible thought! (that Xhaka bit)#6 - Fabinho (26), Henderson (29) Wijnaldum (29), Lallana (31)
#8 - Keita (24), Wijnaldum (29), Milner (34), Oxlade (26)
#8 - Henderson (29), Oxlade (26), Lallana (31)
Well the answer is here. Lallana is on his way out, Milner is 34. So basically we're left with Fabinho, Hendo, Gini, Keita, Ox. That's 5 players for 3 positions. Consider injuries, mad schedule + Gini and Hendo are almost 30 and Keita is not the most consistent player out there. All in all Fabinho is the only 100% starter, Hendo, Keita, Gini and Ox are close but can't see how signing a young box-to-box player with a great potential could hurt us. The competition is always a good thing.
Anyway, laughed that just as we were talking about this, Murphy suddenly decided we needed to sign Xhaka "If Xhaka was in Liverpool’s side with Henderson and Fabinho, he would look a hell of a player because he is technically good, a good passer, has a great shot on him and he has the ability with his great left foot to open you up"https://tribuna.com/en/liverpoolfc/news/3541456/ I'd rather cut off my arm than sign this guy.
